Visible music – playing the past, dancing the present: performances April 2014

Delighted to announce performances of Visible Music on 25th, 27th and 29th April.  This intimate and pleasurable evening of dance and music in collaboration brings together top performers from Ballet in Small Spaces and Barefoot Opera, conjuring forgotten pasts into present life through danced realisations of unusual repertoire.

The salon pieces of 18th century composer and viola da gamba virtuoso Carl Friedrich Abel range in character from exuberant and playful to wistful and melancholic.  They are the inspiration for Two old instruments in which Jonathan Rees and Susie Crow reflect on history and memory.

Dances, Oracles, Mysteries features pianists Julian Jacobson and Mariko Brown, singer Jenny Miller and dancers Chiara Vinci and Francesco Mangiacasale in evocative response to Debussy piano pieces, songs, and the composer’s little-known ballet Khamma, blurring the boundaries between performing disciplines to create a subtle but exhilarating narrative.
